Access standard for housing: National Construction Code

In October 2017, the Building Ministers Forum (BMF) agreed to develop a national regulatory impact statement (RIS) for accessible housing. The RIS was to examine the Liveable Housing Design Guidelines (silver and gold levels) as options for creating a minimum access standard in the National Construction Code (NCC). The Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) released the Consultation RIS for public consultation from 6 July to 31 August 2020. SACOSS wrote to the Minister for Human Services to follow up on this important area.
